RIVERSIDE, Calif. — A Quail Valley man was arrested this past weekend after he led Corona police officers in two pursuits and then injured a police dog in his attempt to escape.

Timothy Edward Busby, 41, a probationer, was booked into the Presley Detention Center in Riverside for investigation of reckless driving while evading a peace officer, second-degree burglary, harming a dog used by a police officer and probation violation, the Corona Police Department said in a news release.

Busby's bail was set at $100,000, jail records indicate.

About 11:40 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 8, an officer patrolling a Corona shopping center saw a man running across the parking lot carrying an item he could not identify, police said.
